Nikon Coolpix 5600 Review

Review Date: April 4, 2005


Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix 5600 is targeted to the first-time point-and-shoot photographer. It features 5.1 MP resolution, 3x optical Zoom, and scene modes to simplify shooting in a range of common situations.

A selection of innovative Nikon functions is included to improve the quality of the image. Nikon's exclusive D-Lighting function is available in Playback mode for use on images with excessive backlight or insufficient flash. At the touch of a button, D-Lighting keeps bright areas bright, while automatically adding light and detail to the darker parts. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix detects red-eye effect sometimes caused by flash, and correct it in-camera. Blur Warning alerts the user of camera shake, allowing another shot to be taken. A new Underwater Scene mode has been added for use with the optional waterproof case WP-CP3 (not available in some countries or areas).

The Nikon 5600 takes movies with sound.

The Nikon Coolpix 5600 should appeal to the very first-time point-and-shoot photographers. [Nikon Canada offers a two-year warranty.]
